Hey my names mike and I just bought my dream car, a 2002 subaru wrx here is my story so far.
Long story short, I found this baby on craigslist for $3500 with a rod knock and the night I bought it she finally went kaboom. Ended up finding a car in Lookout, CA for $1000 it was totally and posted to having good running motor, after the 4 hour drive we get there after loosing a tire on the trailer going 60mph on the freeway(Thanks god for tandem axel trailers.). Me and my buddy ended up going half and half on the car so $500 each and I payed the $140 in gas. We got back and pulled the motor and I transported it over to my house and finally got it swapped in yesterday.
Needless to say the motor has bent valves and is now sitting in a shop waiting to get my old heads from the rod knock motor put onto the good block. So as it sits im $4200 into the car and will be around $5200 after the shop bill which I consider still a good deal due to the fact these things go for $7500-$10,000 in my area.
